Lot #1293 - Called "Cool Cat," this 1969 Cougar convertible was created by renowned Hot Rod builder Hot Rod Express. The only original DNA left after creation was the body. Every part of this car was carefully designed, created, picked and fabricated. Nothing was left untouched, from the serious horsepower of a 32-valve, dual overhead cam motor attached to a 4-speed overdrive transmission, to a narrowed 9" 31-spline rear end with 3.73 gears, full air ride system and 4-wheel disc brakes. All of this is supported by a fully custom designed, boxed, tubular frame with Heidt's front suspension and a triangle 4-bar rear. Sitting on this platform is an all-steel body, fully welded uni-body with notched floors, so the rocker panels are flush to the bottom of the frame. The factory dash was sectioned 5", all custom dash panels made from imported Carpathian elm wood, custom Ultraleather interior with custom BMW carpeted floors. The paint is PPG Vibrant Nutmeg. Absolutely nothing was left untouched and way too much detail to list. Featured in multiple magazines and winner of Goodguys Top 5 award, ROUSH Racing award, Ford in a Ford award and ISCA Top Show Winner just to name a few. From The Michael Jenkins Collection
